Fall colours are on the way

Blackberries now_DSC6125

Fall is definitely in the air. Maples are turning, berries are ripe and there is a chill out there on a cloudy day.

I spent a couple of hours in Delta today. Took a backpack full of camera gear, but once again, just used one lens. You’d think I’d learn.

Anyway, my 85mm was on the camera, so I used that. It was fine when the sun was behind the clouds, but when it was shining, whoa, what a lot of light for a fast lens. I’m starting to think the camera makers aren’t all that far off in offering lenses between f3.5 and f5.6. Especially for outdoor, daytime shooting.

I’m sure I’ll feel differently in the winter, but for now, f1.8 is a challenge, even at the native 200 iso on my Nikon.
